Jadon Sancho is 90 per cent likely to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports. Liverpool supposedly want the player.
The Jadon Sancho race may start to heat up soon. Reports indicate that the England winger will be on the market this summer.
Sky Sports Germany say there’s now a 90 per cent chance that Sancho leaves Dortmund, in fact. That’s pretty high.
This comes shortly after Sport1 reported that Dortmund bosses ‘assume’ the player is off this summer. They may even accept under the £100m they wanted last summer.
It appears a big summer move is on the cards, then.

What RTK has to say
The worrying thing is that we have to go all the way back to October to find a decent link to Liverpool. Back then, the Independent named Sancho as a genuine summer option for the Reds.
But that may well still be the case. Especially if the chances that Sancho leaves have increased – and that’s certainly the impression we get.
Is Sancho the same player, though? That’s a question that needs asking after a strange season for the youngster.
Last season, Sancho was sensational, of course. He scored 17 Bundesliga goals and assisted 16 – a phenomenal record.
But he started this campaign incredibly slowly and has just three goals and seven assists over 18 games.
2021 has seen a rejuvenation, though, as all three of those goals came since the turn of the year. In fact, his 2021 form is seven Bundesliga games, three goals, and four assists.
So perhaps there’s nothing to worry about. Certainly, from our point of view, Sancho is a player Liverpool should try to sign.
He’s an elite talent who has already shone in a top league before turning 21. That’s hard to find.
If Sancho does leave Dortmund this summer, we really hope it’s to Liverpool.
